Children often struggle to cope with anger, and their angry feelings can boil over into aggression and destructive behaviour. This resource provides a 15-session group program designed to teach children and adolescents valuable skills for anger management, effective anger expression and assertive communication. Each detailed session provides step-by-step guidelines for carrying out the lesson plans, group activities and discussions. Suitable for use with children and teenagers aged 5-18, it will help them to overcome self-destructive passive, aggressive, and passive-aggressive patterns of behaviour. Instead of teaching children not to be angry, this engaging resource teaches them how to be angry effectively and constructively. It will be of great use to professionals working with children and teenagers in school and child care settings, counselors, social workers, psychologists and parents.
